Simply put, this is a no-brainer. If you want an easy way to influence your team and show them that you care about THEM… may we introduce the most affective sub-conscience way to do so – showing up early.
Brenton’s pastor growing up used to always say “if you’re on time, you’re late.” – This is something a lot of people disregard and don’t think much about. But how many times have you noticed, when you walk into a meeting and the person you’re meeting with is already there, how it feels different than when they’re not there.
The same goes for rehearsals. When everyone is early, set up, and ready to go, then when rehearsal starts, everyone feels at ease and confident. When someone is still dialing in tone, running around to find cables, changing strings when it’s time to start… it pushes everything back… then when you have a song that’s rough, or technical issues you have to work out, you’re already running late and it causes unnecessary stress. Whereas, if everyone is on time, there’s a marginal space to work out any unforeseen issues. And if everything goes smoothly, you’re done early! More time to hang with the rest of the crew, eat a little snack in the green room, use the restroom, etc.
It’s a short and simple episode, but a truth that is crucial to every teams growth and success.
